We went to Wildwood last Saturday and the meal exceeded our expectations in every way! I had Cajun Mahi Mahi with crab cakes for an appetizer. My friend had Sea Bass and crab cakes as well. My Mahi Mahi was served on a plank and the fish was moist, fresh with just the right amount of seasoning. My friend raved... More

I've eaten here so many times with perfect experiences - then I moved away. I recently stopped in for some quick apps and was reminded how great this place is. I had Tuna Boats (Avocado) and loved them. Looking forward to going back for my birthday !!

Wildwood continues its 10 year record as an outstanding restaurant. The setting is lovely including the outdoor patio, the menu is interesting, the food exceptional and the service is outstanding. This is all made better by the reasonable prices. We have lived in the Geneva area for 17 years and try many area restaurants. None is better than Wildwood.

Visited on a Friday in Sept for lunch and sat indoors. Our server was friendly and accommodating while we talked instead of looking the menu right away. Ordered the salmon burger which was fine, but could have come with a few more fries. The location at Dodson Place is the calling card, especially when you can sit outdoors.

We stopped here during the Wine Fest they were having in Geneva. The food was good but service a bit spotty. I had the 2 Crab Cakes which were good. The shoestring potatoes were good. My wife had the Chicken Club which she liked. I had to ask twice for both my iced tea and our beignets. The outside patio... More

Sitting outside on a beautiful day in Geneva having brunch was very nice. The Blueberry pancakes were very tasty and cooked perfect as was the Heart Smart omelet. I typically wait to eat at Egg Harbor never thinking about going next door. I now have 2 favorite places to eat breakfast in Geneva.

We wanted eat at Egg Harbor but the wait was incredibly long so we thought we would give this place a try. We were promptly given a seat in an extremely warm dining room. It wasn't busy. Our waitress took our order- two salads and chicken tenders for the kids and we proceeded to wait, wait and you guessed it,... More

Had lunch here with my sisters. I got the turkey burger which was a risk I admit. It looked to be frozen and was terrible. The side salad had no flavor, I couldn't even tell if it was dressed. My sister got the Southwest salad the chicken was so tough it was hard to cut. Lastly, the place was empty...... More
